Exciting news! The Sister's Choice quilt that I made for my sister Kathy is featured on the cover of Emilie Richard's latest novel, "Sister's Choice." See more about this in the Virtual Gallery.
A Tenth Anniversary gift to you! It's been a pleasure building this site since 1998 and meeting so many wonderful quilters. The very simple, very quick Giant Star Quilt is perfect for donation quilts, as my guild is doing. Enjoy!
